The Buddy Project: „making friendships and saving lives, one buddy at a time“

„Gabby Frost founded Buddy Project on April 8th, 2013, when she was 15 and a freshman in high school. She was motivated to create this initiative after a few of her friends told her they were going through mental illness, self-harm addiction, and suicidal thoughts and always told Gabby how her support helped them. After discovering many teens on Twitter were going through the same problems, Gabby remembered what her friends told her about how much support from a friend meant to them…Buddy Project, Inc. is a non-profit movement that aims to prevent suicide, self-harm and eating disorders by pairing people as buddies. We will primarily focus on children, teens and young adults across the globe by providing positivity, companionship, resources and education, in order to reduce the stigma of mental illness, bullying and negativity on social media. By introducing these concepts at an early age, we hope to promote empathy, compassion and awareness of mental health issues… As of February 4th, 2016, over 130,000 people have signed up to receive a buddy.“ > Website: http://www.buddy-project.org/
